Bethenny Frankel is rushed to the hospi­tal — the lat­est of many tragic mo­ments in 2018

One minute, Bethenny Frankel was en­joy­ing a meal. The next, she was fight­ing for her life. Less than two weeks be­fore Christ­mas, the Real House­wives of New York star suf­fered a near-fa­tal al­ler­gic re­ac­tion to seafood that landed her in the in­ten­sive care unit of New­ton-welles­ley Hospi­tal out­side of Bos­ton for two days (see side­bar).

Upon re­lease and while re­cov­er­ing at home af­ter the truly ter­ri­fy­ing or­deal, Bethenny be­gan count­ing her bless­ings. “This is the best hospi­tal I’ve ever been to,” she wrote. “I’m so grate­ful.”

The 48-year- old real­ity star has been try­ing to main­tain a pos­i­tive out­look on life, but it hasn’t been easy. The mid- de­cem­ber hos­pi­tal­iza­tion was just the lat­est in a long string of trag-

ic events that Bethenny’s en­dured this year — and at this point, she’s des­per­ate for re­lief. “Hands down, Bethenny has had the worst year of her life,” says an in­sider. “She looked back and was amazed by ev­ery­thing she’s gone through. She’s hop­ing and pray­ing 2019 is drama-free.”


Be­fore her own brush with death, Bethenny was hit hard by the fa­tal drug over­dose of her on/off boyfriend Den­nis Shields and the pass­ing of her beloved dog, Cookie. But that was just the be­gin­ning. Her di­vorce drama also con­tin­ued, af­ter ex-hus­band Ja­son Hoppy re­opened their cus­tody bat­tle over 8-year- old daugh­ter Bryn.

And af­ter fall­ing out with most of her fel­low House­wives in­clud­ing BFF Ca­role Radzi­will, she could no longer rely on the sup­port sys­tem she used to have. “Just when Bethenny be­lieved things were re­ally get­ting bet- ter, some­thing else would hap­pen,” says the in­sider. “She re­ally thought that she was cursed.”

Ac­cord­ing to the in­sider, Bethenny is so con­vinced that some­one has put a hex on her, she sought out help from pro­fes­sion­als. “She’s gone to psy­chics and spir­i­tual ad­vi­sors, she’s done sage cleanses and bought crys­tals,” the in­sider re­veals.

But while she has found com­fort in heal­ers and can­dles, not to men­tion boyfriend Paul Bernon Bethenny is feel­ing more wary than ever as she pre­pares for 2019. Says the in­sider, “She’s try­ing to move for­ward, but she’s al­ways wait­ing for the other shoe to drop.”
